Air admittance valve?


Hello:

Does anyone know if I can use an air admittance valve on a washing machine drain that has no air vent?

Thanks

Code depends on where you are, but I can tell you it will work. Mine has been that way for about 2 years, no complaints, ex-large capacity washer (but front load) and many loads on some days.
